Keeping Hotspot users logged in over days (laptops, mostly)

Fri Aug 26, 2005 5:47 pm

Under 2.8, we had no problems with this. Hotspot users with laptops could wander off, come back, and remain logged in.

Under 2.9, they seem to get logged out. The log message says something along the lines of "Hotspot user logged out; lost DHCP lease." I've tried setting the DHCP leases to long periods of time, and it doesn't seem to change things. Idle timeout is high, keepalive timeout is high...

It's not a HUGE problem, but it would be nice to not have laptops needing to re-login. Suggestions?

Is the laptop always connected to the hotspot or you are shutting it down and then powering it up after some time?
You can enable the cookie support for hotspot - users will be automatically logged in each time when they access the web with the web browser.

The problem is actually with someone using Vonage - a VoIP solution. Their laptop doesn't get logged in until they open the web browser, and as such their VoIP stuff doesn't work when they're home all the time.

These are some of the log messages I'm getting:

hotspot,info,debug flysohigh35 (12.201.132.111): logged out: lost dhcp lease

The systems are getting their DHCP leases pulled long before they should expire - they're set to a 2 day expiration period.
